In this edition of the CEO Update…

CEO David Meates highlights an important milestone in managing the COVID-19 outbreak: there are no longer any known active cases of COVID-19 in Canterbury, while acknowledging the losses we and our community experienced with the deaths of 12 residents from Rosewood Rest Home and Hospital. He also provides a snapshot into Canterbury COVID-19 cases, such as how many cases we have had, where they were, and how many patients were assessed in our dedicated COVID-19 ward. Additionally, he congratulates the Queen's Birthday Honours recipients from Canterbury who have worked to support and improve the health of Cantabrians.

This issue also highlights the mammoth amount of work that the Canterbury Health Laboratories team has put into our COVID-19 response, testing 1549 samples for COVID-19 on its busiest day; provides an update on progress of the Rolleston Health Hub and Rangiora Health Hub; thanks and farewells Shona Mackintosh, who has worked in mental health for the previous 53 years; and much more.
